Because coffee is better in a ceramic mug. My last bout of flu was concurrent with the end of my trip to Savannah, GA last month. I went a few days without coffee and while thinking that I would feel like garbage anyway, decided it would be a good time to attempt to quit. That... Continue Reading →

The green extends further right of the flag-stick than the bunkering suggests, so much so that this seemingly middle hole location is actually closer to the left edge.
